I misunderstood how highlighting works. It works as expected if I view "Newest" questions or "Active" questions. I was mistakenly searching through tagged questions. In the image, you can see that the search criterion was "[Kubuntu]" and so questions 3 and 5 with just "Kubuntu" as the tag weren't being highlighted. (By the way, I hadn't noticed the ...

Looking at the post's timeline, it seems like you voted to close it around 11h ago (08:17 UTC) using the custom Off-topic → Other reason, which also let you add a comment: It seems it's more about hardware/software not related to Ubuntu.

This is because network wide reputation recalculation occurred last night. Earlier an upvote on question used to award +5 reputation points but since yesterday it would award +10 (equal to an upvote on answer).

Global Rep Adjustment. Read "We're rewarding the question askers" on the StackOverflow blog for details. They started implementation yesterday. (Upvotes on questions that were +5 are now +10 so you gain rep from this recalc) Mods have more details on this than end users do, though, so I'll include this tidbit specific for your reputation for this inquiry ...
